's not on the top of anyone's mind. even though it was the subject of the final foreign policy debate, which was this week though it feels like it was months ago. at the end it was clear both had a strategy goinging in and it had very little to do with talking about the u.s. foreign policy. >> right. there was the expected clash of world views. romney has been bush -- pushing the idea of american exceptionalism, the very muscular view of foreign policy, pushing, and right down the line , but that romney didn't show up for the debate. he pulled himself very close to president obama's positions on pulling the troops out of afghanistan in 2014, on not introducing military forces into the crisis in syria, on crippling sanctions in iran and it was really stunning. gwen: did the specifics matter or was this about both of them trying to look like the commander fdemeef >> it was a good strategy on romney's part, iroda tulyaganovaly. the public suffered from not having two candidates with two very different inextincts -- instincts on foreign policy, but this is where he has stumbled. whenever he has
. for the first time, foreign policy is now part of this discussion that we're having. i've been traveling all over. this tragedy turned into a deboch expel massive cover-up or massive incompetence in libya is having an effect on the voter because of their view of the commander in chief. and it is now the worst cover-up or incompetence that i have ever observed in my life. >> schieffer: let me get to that in a second. let me just ask you what you said there. are you saying the president, should he come off the campaign trial now and devote himself to directing efforts and that sort of thing? >> i'm sure he will. at least for a period of time i'm sure that the president will. we all remember new orleans. >> schieffer: what about-- what about what you just said about libya? are you saying now that this was a deliberate cover-up coming out of the libya, that in fact this was not what the administration said it was, but something else entirely, and that, i guess, if it was a cover-up, are you saying they did it for political reasons? >> i don't know if it's either cover-up or gross-- the worst kin
documents recovered from the benghazi compound by the foreign policy magazine show that in the early morning hours of september 11, the consulate staff believed they were under surveillance. this person was photographing the inside of the u.s. special mission. and furthermore, this person was part of the police unit sent to protect the mission. this is consistent with online post from sean smith, avid gamer before it was overrun with terrorists. smith was killed. "assuming we don't die tonight we saw one of the police guarding the come pound taking pictures." the classified cable sent to hillary clinton noted by headquarters that the situation on the ground was so dire in the long-term the consulate would take the extreme step of moving in with the cia at the annex which also came under attack on 9/11. >> the conditions on the ground were such that literally the back were up against the wall. they had no options left. >> reservations about the libyan security, escalates violence, rise of demolition central to the classified table sent in mid-august, forshadows the commando style attack. >> i
foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the attack ahead of time. because ike had made clear to our allies, to england specifically, that he didn't want another big multi-country conflict in the world. he'd worked with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second w
." >> this is on foreign policy. the american ambassador to libya was recently killed. syria has defended -- descended into civil war. united states sends hundreds of billions of dollars in federal aid to countries around the world democracies and dictators. what should be the basic guiding principles of american foreign policies? >> fundamentally, i would have to say that freedom is something we need to encourage across the world. that me talk about christopher's stevens and what happened. his death along with three others is a tragedy, and that has been in a lot of people's thoughts and prayers. we need to get to the bottom of that, and i'm not here to speculate on who did what, but we need to find out and the american people need to know. i hope it will be transparent and can be clear so, two things will come out of it. people need to be held accountable, but also we can learn from that, so in the future if we have diplomats abroad we can ensure we are protecting them. as it relates to other countries, and there is turmoil in the middle east, from my perspective, that is one thing that we have don
and what we can do for our foreign policy and. we are way ahead of everyone, including china. we have the best universities. we have entrepreneurialism spirits. we have a political system. i will take us over china and others. we're all gonna be thinking about the polarization next tuesday. we have the trifecta of stimulating the sluggish growth, getting on top of our debt problems, and investing in our future of the same time. i think we can do it. if we can, there is no reason to talk about american decline. >> i want the students, friends, faculty, please start thinking about questions. linocut the microphone. i do not know how many we will take because of time constraints. i want to ask our guests one other question about the future. in many ways, every administration is tested not by the things that they plan to do, but to the things that happened that they did not expect. the surprises. i guess the question for all of you looking to the future is what do you think will be the surprise for the next administration in asia? we will start with chris and work our way back. >> the qui
night, governor romney agreed with the president. but this is a different set of foreign policy views that he had earlier in the campaign. >> and george, that had been an argument that the obama people had kind of shied away from earlier in the campaign. >> well, that's right. right now, that charge is really an accusation that romney can live with. which is don't believe him, as andrew said, because you might like him. i think people say, look, our last impression of him, this is your closing argument, that this is someone that we can live with. i think the obama attack is buttressing the attack. >> agree? >> i don't agree. if you're paying attention to the policy, it has to worry you that he has bunch of stated policies in his platform, if you start unpacking them, there aren't any details and what he's saying now is totally different than what he is saying now. >> don't people normally state that. >> i don't think he flipped to a policy. i think he's basically just, he's got a thing in writing that my policy is "a." you say "a" is my policy, but it's not. >> but the problem is oba
. when you have something as prominent as libya has been in the obama administration's foreign policy, if you takes the credit for it, he can take the responsibility for it as well. >> all right, embassador bolton always good to see you. >> thank you. >> all eyes on the swing state as election day approaches. a new look at the final campaign push from president obama and governor romney straight ahead. >> and millions of us are bracing for what could be the most powerful and dangerous storm we've ever seen maybe since the hurricane of '38 that flattened rhode island and monday talk. >> it's going to be a long three days. >> we're going to make sure the river doesn't come in too high and get in the house.

, columnist of the post. in addition to that, today, foreign policy magazine, which is a well regarded magazine in washington, d.c., long history, they had two people. harold duron barbuh and jerone moulasasa. i'm sorry if i'm not pronouncing that right. they had gone to dubai. dubai based television to the compound to do reporting and they found in the compound stuff that our own f.b.i. didn't find. so at this point, i think that it was jake tapper of abc news wrote there is a drip, drip, drip about this. the administration set themselves up for this by blaming video in the first place. i actually am going to complain. i don't think romney brought this up enough. if he had, other reporters would have paid attention earlier. >> bob: it was smart. they found copy of "new yorker" magazine. >> dana: no, they found a letter from him. >> bob: they did? >> kimberly: you should be concerned. >> dana: dated september 11. >> bob: on the other hand i would like to see how many other consulates around the country and embassy asked for backup help. six weeks prior to the event, which nobody expect
to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut
presidential debate this past week was about foreign policy but dominated by the discussion of the economy and that's what we're going to hear from the candidates on the campaign trail. >> candy, ultimately those, that small sliver that mark is talking about, wants answers as you suggest, they are not likely to get in the next week and a half or so. inevitably, there are going to be unanswered questions. it won't matter for the loser what is the advantage to being nonspecific right now. can they still -- can these candidates who are deadlocked, can they win this election without getting more specific? >> well, somebody will without -- and neither one of them have been very specific as you well know. i do think, ali, that in terms of putting out a -- look, here's the bill i'm going to introduce, or here's the exact numbers in the budget, in general what happens with campaigns, at least for the presidency, it is less about feilling in those lines a it is about talking about a direction. i think for a couple reasons. first of all, mort lines you fill in, the bigger target it is. second of all
it clear that they also have a very different view on foreign policy. when we entered the war in iraq, they said we should have kept 30,000 troops there. they refuse to commit to an end date on the war in afghanistan, and they openly opposed the signing of an arms control treaty with russia that every single former republican secretary of state, secretary of defense, and national security adviser urged be ratified. >> there is vice president joe biden in lynchburg, virginia. let's go ahead and take you to governor mitt romney. he is in kissimmee, florida, here. just taken the stage there. behind him marco rubio. also connie mack. connie mack represents the fourth district here in florida. >> in english and spanish, and thank you for being here. what a welcome! this is fabulous, thank you. [ cheering ] now let me underline something that connie mack just said. he reminded you that early voting began today. that means that today you can go vote. and it helps for you to vote now because the earlier you vote, the more help you can give us getting other people to the polls? because we're g
the effect of the deadly attack in benghazi because foreign policy before that attack was a clear advantage for the president, but the controversy and contradictory statements coming from the administration has hurt president obama that poll reflects it. jon: there are questions too about how this president is handling the economy. right now only 45% say they approve. 52% disapprove. in october of 2010 i guess, the numbers were slightly lower for the president. i'm sorry, in terms of the disapproval number. 61%. so it is getting better, but still he is not looking too good when it comes to his handling of the economy. >> no and that is the number one issue of this election. so the fact that it is so close and those numbers are so bad for the president, actually a good sign for the president because those numbers are not good. in 2009, president obama mocked republicans. said they're always trying to make this mess and give me the economy and then he took ownership. said, give it to me. i will own the economy. that is the big issue of this election and that is why republicans say at the last
can't be trusted, because he said he has moved to the middle on key issues, like taxes, foreign policy and education. the president arguing that he's still the best candidate to get the economy back on track. he continues to enlist former president bill clinton to help. the two will be campaigning together in florida on monday. the one thing looming over the closing argument, the october jobs report. it comes out the friday before voters head to the polls. lester? >> peter, a candidate can't be in many places at one time. what's the plan now for romney with ten days? where will his focus be? >> reporter: it's a good question. mitt romney will focus on an optimistic jobs oriented theme for the last ten days. they're trying to make a clear contrast between the two candidates. referring to his own candidacy as one of big change and the president is one of status quo. that word "big" we heard 24 times from romney today. we are likely to hear it again several times tonight. lester? >> all right. peter and kristen on the campaign trail for us tonight. thank you. we want to let you know, from
, on this issue generally in foreign policy, how is that playing out in pennsylvania? guest: there is no doubt that the president had a pretty substantial lead on foreign policy in the polls that have been done. that lead has certainly narrowed to four, five, six points in the polls i looked at just last week. the been gauzy issue has certainly played a pretty significant role in that decline. on been gauzy, it's hard to say exactly how that would play a politically. i do think the administration has a lot to answer for objectively for how they handled it and what the president and vice-president new or did not know when any time and how they responded to the request for security. we do not have time to get in the details of that. typically that would not be decisive. we will not go to the moral question that the caller raised, but in political terms, it's not likely to be decisive, but it's certainly not helpful to the president. it is still in the polls that i have done and others have done largely about the economy. host: this was just a few days ago from politicio. republicans are intrigue
interesting intelligent comments about mitt romney foreign policy and domestic policy. but john sunuunu has a different idea why colin powell is backing barack obama. >> frankly when you take a look at colin powell. you have to wonder if that is based on issues or is there a slightly different reason for preferring barack obama. >> what reason would that be. >> when you have someone from your own race who is president obama, i applaud powell for standing for him. >> cenk: the neo-cons and the fact that powell is crossing the republicans--no, no, no. this is what he sees. he sees colin powell and barack obama, look at that, they're both black. that's a classic case of projection. he thinks us republicans we vote based on race. if there is a black quite versus a white guy we vote for the white guy. that's what cool bin powell is doing, too. no colin powell has a brain. 's not a gut r rctctn racisistt liou j jn sunuunu. apparently he felt bad about this again this is the eighth time he has done it on the campaign trail specifically about race. he walked it back today and said i do not doubt it
that we had four debates and climate change didn't come up once. in the foreign policy debate teacher's unions and the national debt got more at attention that climate change did. and this week they have a result of climate change blowing right up their shorts on the east coast. so future historians assuming they are any, are going to look at this time in history and think we're all out of our minds. >> charlie the hurricane is coming for that reason when we all know that it is because governor romney capitlated at a farm in virginia. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: stay right there. we'll tell you what hurricane sandy could mean for the election. plus believe it or not, there was a time when people watching tv would the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so v

night, the presidential debate was on foreign policy, andrew's question is about foreign policy. andrew, welcome. please, ask your question. >> [inaudible] >> moderator: okay, thank you. i think we had a mic problem, andrew, but i'll restate the question. andrew said, does current u.s. foreign policy in the middle east undermine our national security? do you agree or disagree? what steps should be taken in foreign policy in the middle east? mr. mourdock? one minute. mourdock: well, our foreign policy is of critical concern, of course, and in the middle east we must always, first and foremost, stand by our great friend, israel, and also we must be making the message that no options can be taken off the table as we look towards a nuclear iran. but to the bigger point of our national security, you know, it was the former head of the joint chiefs of staff, admiral mullen, that said the greatest threat to our national security is our own national debt. the fact that we have now spent ourselves into a $16 trillion debt is inexcusable. the fact that we continue to see the debt limit raised and
's sort of how he's promising it. and foreign policy i do fear the hawkishness of the line that governor romney's taken. talking about going to war with iran if they even have the capability to build a nuclear weapon. that's preemptive. and i think that's a very dangerous pattern to go down. we did that before with iraq. i don't think preemptive war is anything more than war. >> it's always food. it's always food. i'm obsessed with a place in east elmhurst queens, a french pastry shop. i've gone there the last two weekends, including taking a big subway ride and hiking over there. it's not near a subway. "argo" i loved the movie. go ben aflex. i think he did a great job. i'm going to be seeing "lincoln." obviously love doris kearns goodwin's book. >> we don't know which one of these guys will be marching towards the finish line on november 6th. this is just you go around the country and people, you go to airports, and the dollar bill didn't come with it but it just sort of seems a nice touch. don't you think? >> we'll have more of my conversation today at 12:00 noon. we're going to talk
situation, the president deals of great deal with foreign policy, domestic policy, it makes sense to make sure you will not be so heavily weighted one way or another. for example, in the 2004 election, iraq was a huge issue. that might have been a time where the candidates would want to spend a lot more time on foreign policy. right now, most voters say the primary concern is the economy. so, i think maybe there needs to be a little more flexibility in combat. -- on that. i know candy was thinking about that -- on that. i know can be was thinking about that. >> they are given three debates. we did go back and look at what was covered thoroughly. one of them was education, and at one point the president but did meehan said -- looked at me and said we have not discussed education at all, and i said in my head, sorry, he spent the first 20 minutes of the first debate talking about education. we knew -- remember, the first questions all came from the town hall, so i could not just come off with a question that was not represented in their questions. we knew that syria, iran and israel would b
about the exon nous events that might change this. it might be libya, foreign policy crisis. in the end a domestic crisis like this ends up being a better hand for the president to play. campaigns are being conducted on parallel tracks and while the president is sequestered in the white house i'm sure he'll tour the damage at some point. the super pacs are airing their ads and we know there is a war under way between the romney campaign and the obama campaign, specifically on the question of the auto bail outout there has been in swing states trying to tear down -- not tear down but people have questioned the voracity of the romney messaging on the auto bailout as it points to jobs going overseas to china and keep sending jobs to china. i wonder what you make of that. is that super packed messaging enough to try to override the benefit may gain from being put in this elevated position of commander in chief? >> you know, be i was sitting here this morning trying to put myself in the mind of a voter in ohio, swing voter in ohio, and i suspect that for them, the hurricane, the damage and d
: must be 4 who is better in foreign policy? >> president obama. >> rose: right. >> what would you add to that? those are the basic kind of -- >> well there is a different variations of cares about pele, o undetands the middle class. i thought all along, governor romney on those questions, those character and trade questions, governor romney needed to do three things. on cares about you, understands the middle class be closer than he could have been, he couldn't lose those by large double digit margins and narrowed those. couldn't win them, had no narrow them. had plans for the economy needed a significant lead. the president has been ahead at times, kind of remarkable and three is, is favorable, unfavablegovernor rney wentn the geral election season based on most polls as the worst nominee of either party ever in terms of do you like this person or not? do you think of them favorably, unfavorably, he has really improved and in fact in some polling he went past the president on that measure. and that is to go back to the question of what is the one dynamic of this campaign? would he
